Urban Window Gallery, Malmö Sweden 2020

When Corona hit and paralyzed the music- and performance arts, this beautiful collaboration was born. These brilliant artists worked together, yet apart, creating an exciting fusion between opera, jazz and modern dance.

All inspired by one of the most beautful pieces of music ever written; Erbarme dich, mein Gott from the St. Matthew Passion by Johan Sebastian Bach.
